"The late Ibn Saleh was confirmed to be responsible for the recent assassination of Civil War hero, the late General Mamman Shuwa, through the orders of the leader of the Boko Haram terrorists, Abubakar Shekau," it added.
79-year-old Shuwa was a top commander with the federal troops during the Biafra and Nigeria civil war in the 60s.
The military has claimed a number of successes against Boko Haram in recent months, including the killing of its spokesman and senior ideologue Abu Qaqa in an attack on his vehicle in September.
